Looks like Hiding apps like in the Note 2 is not possible.
Although you may be unable to uninstall some preloaded apps, you may be able to hide and disable them. This causes them to hide from the Apps menu and not perform updates.
To hide or disable preloaded apps, follow these steps:
- From any Home screen, tap the Menu key.
- Tap Settings.
- Tap the General tab.
- Tap Application manager.
- If necessary, swipe left or right to the appropriate screen:
- SD card
- Tap the desired application.
Note: If desired, tap the Menu key and then tap Sort by name or Sort by size to change how the apps are listed.
- Tap Disable and then tap OK. The app is now listed at the bottom of the list (not alphabetical order).
